Asian eye makeup differs from region to region. The Chinese, Japanese and Thai people have creaseless eyelids. On the other hand, the Middle Eastern and Indian eyes have creased eyelids.
The crease of the eye is enhanced to give definition to the eyes. Asian eyes can carry off darker and vibrant shades due to the darker skin tones. Otherwise the technique of applying the makeup is the same as used in Caucasian eyes.
Makeup normally applied begins by touching the eyes with creams that fill wrinkles and remove puffiness, followed by the translucent foundation to help bring out the color of the eye shadow. You’ll start the makeup with a darker eye shade brushed into the outer edge while the inner edge will take a lighter shade. The eyelash is emphasized with a streak of the darker eyeshadow along its edge.
Eyebrows enhance the eyes, therefore it is best to shape, brush and fix them with the help of a gel. Then you can apply mascara which also adds volume to the lashes. Sequins, glitter; shimmery eye shadows make the Asian eyes mesmerizing.
The creaseless eyes can be done up with a few Asian eye makeup tricks. A gray or brown eye shadow a few shades darker than the skin tone can be applied to create a false crease. The darker shades of eye shade and line are applied along the eye lash and then the rest of the eye is highlighted with a lighter shade.
Darker eye shadows are always applied before the light shades and the look is completed by defining the eyes with eyeliner. The usually straight lashes of the creaseless eyes can be curled with a curling wand or mascara cum curler, another option is to use pre-curled false lashes. You can apply the lashes with glue along the line of the lash, beginning from the outer edge working towards the inner, emphasizing the shape of dark eyes.
